       csvinfo.cgi - CGI program to show host information from a CSV file




       csvinfo.cgi  is  invoked  as  a  CGI  script via the CGI wrapper.  Based on the
       parameters it receives, it searches a comma- separated file for  the  matching  host,  and
       presents the information found as a table.

       csvinfo.cgi is passed a QUERY_STRING environment variable with the following parameters:

          key (string to search for, typically hostname)
          column (columnnumber to search - default 0)
          db  (name of the CSV database file in $XYMONHOME/etc/, default hostinfo.csv)
          delimiter (delimiter character for columns, default semi-colon)

       CSV  files are easily created from e.g. spreadsheets, by exporting them in CSV format. You
       should have one host per line, with the first line containing the column headings. Despite
       their  name,  the  default  delimiter  for  CSV  files  is  the semi-colon - if you need a
       different delimiter, invoke csvinfo.cgi with  the  "delimiter=<character>"  in  the  query

Example usage

       This  example  shows  how you can use the csvinfo CGI. It assumes you have a CSV-formatted
       file with information about the  hosts  stored  as  $XYMONHOME/etc/hostinfo.csv,  and  the
       hostname is in the first column of the file.

       Use with the xymongen --docurl
              The  --docurl  option  to  xymongen(1)  sets  up all of the hostnames on your Xymon
              webpages to act as links to a CGI script. To invoke the  csvinfo  CGI  script,  run
              xymongen with the option
